Michael found CrossFit in the fall of 2008. By early 2009, he was competing in the South Central Hell’s Half-Acre regional qualifier in Ft. Worth. Soon after that he found his calling as a leader, mentor, CrossFitter and Coach.
Fast-forward five years: Coach Winchester has competed in 5 Regionals, 1 CrossFit Games (2012) and has coached a team to the CrossFit Games (2014). He has dedicated his life to learning as much about strength, body movement, conditioning, coaching and the Sport of CrossFit as he can, and he realizes that he has only scratched the surface.
As much as he is a teacher, he is also a student. Coach Winchester doesn’t believe there is “one way to the top”. With that in mind, he continues to develop himself and those around him to strive for excellence and always remember that there is a difference between a job done and a job well done.
